A man riding a motorized skateboard passed away on Monday, October 16 after being hit by a car in the University City area of Charlotte. The incident occurred at roughly 6:30 a.m. on West Mallard Creek Church Road near the Interstate 85 overpass. The victim of the crash was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries but passed away shortly afterward. He has been identified as 20-year-old Jalen Donovan Worthy.
When officers arrived at the scene, they found a 2000 Buick LeSabre. The Buick was traveling southeast on West Mallard Creek Church Road when Worthy, on a motorized skateboard, crossed in its path. Worthy was hit by the Buick in the left lane. According to investigators, the crash happened in a dark, unlit area and Worthy was not in the crosswalk.
Mallard Creek Church Road at Mallard Glen Road was shut down while law enforcement officials investigated. Charlotte Fire Department asked drivers to avoid the route during their morning commute. Police said Worthy’s toxicology results are pending.
